Workshop on Logics for Unconventional Computing

March 15–17, 2017 |

Workshop on Logics for Unconventional Computing

Logics for Unconventional Computing (LUC)

Logics for Unconventional Computing is an interdisciplinary workshop which brings together computer scientists and engineers dealing with unconventional computing (such as biological, bio-inspired, chemical, physical, etc. computing) with logicians dealing with non-classical logical, algebraic, co-algebraic, topological, and category-theoretic methods to initiate development of novel bio- and nature-inspired computation paradigms. The workshop aims to exchange ideas, promote fruitful discussions and initiate development on novel paradigms, methodologies and architectures for unconventional computations as well as for applications of computational intelligence in the wide and heterogeneous fields of biology, biomechanics, medicine and health care. It can provide to take a critical glance at the design of novel and emergent computing systems to point out failures and shortcomings of both theoretical and experimental approaches. This workshop is to examine approaches towards a theory of unconventional logic, i.e. a symbolic logic in unconventional computing.

Extended versions of all accepted papers of the workshop will be considered for publication in a special issue of International Journal of Parallel, Emergent and Distributed Systems.


The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Computational biology
  • Biological computation
  • Slime mould computing
  • Social insects computing
  • Bio-molecular computing
  • Unconventional computing
  • Logics of unconventional computing
  • Translational bioinformatics
  • Novel bio-medical hardware systems
  • Computational intelligence methods in biology, biomechanics, medicine and health care
  • Knowledge management and analysis of medical data
  • Medical signal and image processing and techniques
  • Computational models of cognition
  • Computer-aided diagnosis in medicine
